Bill Elliott Good As "Red Ryder"
"Wild" Bill Elliott has the role of Red Ryder in this fine western, "The San Antonio Kid." Robert (Bobby) Blake plays "Little Beaver." Robert Blake's role is larger in this movie than the later one(s) with Allan Lane. Duncan Renaldo, playing a few years later the role of Cisco, in "The Cisco Kid," has a good role in this film as "The San Antonio Kid." Earle Hodgins plays the comic sidekick of both Red and Little Beaver. A good plot, action, a little comedy, and it all adds up to good viewing for the fans of western films.
